    Never pid much attention to how long they lasted. Seems like a week or two for most of them.

    I have some that last a few days, and some that have lasted more than a month. Sometimes I get both on the same plant, but usually those that last, most always last, and those that don't, don't.

    Most of mine seem to last at least 2 weeks, sometimes 3.
    I think they are very long lasting!

    If the pollination is successful, the flower usually drops its corolla in a few days after pollination.

    That's great! I can't wait till the seeds ripen and I can (maybe) get some more plants!
